Android, Tutorials

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to delete a group text you started on Android. Whether you’ve accidentally created a group text or simply want to remove yourself from a conversation, follow the instructions below to easily delete the group text.

Step 1: Open the Messaging App

To get started, open the messaging app on your Android device. This may vary depending on your device and the messaging app you are using. Look for an icon that resembles a speech bubble or a message icon.

Step 2: Find the Group Text

Once you have opened the messaging app, find the group text you want to delete. Scroll through your conversations or use the search bar to locate the specific group text.

Step 3: Long-Press on the Group Text

Long-press on the group text you wish to delete. This action will bring up additional options and settings related to that specific conversation.

Step 4: Select “Delete”

A menu will appear after long-pressing on the group text. Look for an option that says “Delete” or has a trash can icon. Tap on it to proceed with deleting the group text.


If you do not see a “Delete” option in the initial menu, look for an option similar to “Leave Conversation” or “Remove Yourself”. Selecting this option will remove you from the group text without deleting it entirely.

Step 5: Confirm Deletion

A confirmation prompt will appear asking if you are sure you want to delete this conversation. Select “Delete” again to confirm and permanently remove all messages and participants from the group text.


Deleting the group text will not delete it for other participants. They will still be able to view and interact with the conversation unless they also choose to delete or leave the group text.

Step 6: Group Text Deleted!

Congratulations! You have successfully deleted the group text you started on Android. The conversation will no longer appear in your messaging app, and you will no longer receive notifications or messages from that specific group.

If you ever need to create a new group text or join a different one, simply follow these steps again. Remember to double-check before deleting a group text as this action cannot be undone.


  • Open the messaging app on your Android device.
  • Find the group text you want to delete.
  • Long-press on the group text.
  • Select “Delete” or a similar option from the menu.
  • Confirm deletion when prompted.
